JUST ANOTHER "WORD.
A saintly old darkey was on hi'
way.to church when he was overtaken
by a severe electric storm, the
farther he went the harder the wind
blew, the louder the lightning splashed
the darker the day .became, until
finally he began praying, and he
prayed the following famous prayer:
"O Lord, if it all amounts to all the
same with you I do wish you would
send us more light and less noise on
the subject." ^
And. now dear readers, for fen
that you will accuse me. of putting
you in the predicament in which the
old darkey was placed, I had bettei
make my remarks brief and to the
point. HenCe I hasten to it.
A few weeks ago there appeared
in another column of this, paper an
article written by me in which 1
sought to mention some of all of oui
candidates from the President dowr
to our oym county representatives.
But this_time I'm confining my remarks
about the two gentlemen whe
are seeking the two most responsible
offices of any of our home candidates.
One is an office of much responsibility
by reason of the large
number of- people which it repre
sents. The other one is an office of
much responsibility by reason of the
duties that fall upon the one whc
fills said office.
In' mentioning Mr. 3. W. Noell foi
senator 1 sought to mention the fact
that he was a man who had the confidence
of the people. This one thin^
alone dear readers, is enough to nominate
and elect Mr**i. W. Noell as oui
next state senator. But that is net
all of it, we owe it to our sister county
on the east to bring forth the
best man possible as well as to ourselves.
Granville County furnishes
good men when it comes Tier turn to
furnish a man. Now can't Person
County furnish just as good men?
I contend that she can, and in Mr. J,
W. Noell we have a representative
man, yea a man of whom we all should
feel justly proud. He has declared till
intention to serve his fellourman. II
any man in the county had the interest
and wefare of the people at
heart it is Mr. J. W. Noell.
And for sheriff my old friend Mr.
J. L. Cothran is a man about which
too much cannot be said for him. In
my recent' article I mentioned his
having broken up the Blind Tiger in
his home community. This is true,
the Blind Tiger business is almost
unknown in this part pf the qpunty.
If all of our constables were as stricjt
as Mr. Cothran in seeing to it that
our laws were carried out the Blind
Tiger would dry up with thirst, and
we should have prohibition in the
Bravery and courage are two of
the important ear marks of a good
"Bravery is needed when they face
Men of such ranking no cowardice
Of this quality Mr. Cothran has
the good fortune to be possessed with
not a little of it. He is'brave when he
faces danger and forgets self thinking
onlv of the faithful discharge of
To be an officer true to the post of
duty he must be courageous.
"Courage wjlt then uplift us,
Courage that Is -.divine,
And our gladened faces with love
Fired with a" determination to do
ones duty backed up with the bravery,
required for the performance of
said duty will go a long ways towards
perform^g', iL Of thia latter quality
M. Cothran happens to the" good fortune
tP' he b-imfilL. of it.
Vet in my own c'Sfidii^flpinion a
man might still be the possessor "of
the above named qualities, and . stiil
be an abiect failure because what
will his bravery and aourage amount
to if he is not Godfearing. A fnan
may be the possessor of every quality
known to the human tongue, and
with God left out of his life be. s
miserable failure. ^
I happen to know that both of the
gentlemen mentioned above, are men
of the truest type of christian character,
both of whom being, leaders
among their respeetiva denomination.
To my mind this speaks louaer than
words of recommendation -that could
be offered toJV<piuer 01 tndm.
